The Logitech G5 Laser Mouse is primarily a gaming mouse that is designed for accurate, and quick responses during those times you need it! As a computer gamer myself, I picked it up with hopes of it being better then the Logitech MX550 which I previously owned. I was thrilled with the performance of it, and before I dwell in the good, I will explain my one complaint. The lack of two thumb-mouse buttons. For those of you who have used a logitech mouse, you may know what I'm talking of. These are the buttons located on the left side of the mouse and primarily can be set to have custom binds on them. In every game that I've played I've made great use of these buttons, but downgrading from 2 to 1 was unfortunate.
The good things about this mouse are endless. The response is very sharp, and very accurate. I've never had a quicker response and I've definitely never been more satisfied with a mouse. I like the rope-style cord over the plastic-rubber covered cord as well, I feel there have been many times that this cord wouldn't have survived, but did. The feel is good, and the performance is great. I highly recommend it!
